Why do we need stories? How do they shape our lives? Might the stories we tell ourselves and each other help us create better worlds? Or do they simply shelter us from facing reality? Maybe some stories are better lived than told… Follow the story of Phillip, a young writer desperately trying to finish the perfect book. In his many drafts are stories yet to be told and finished. Trapped in his room with nothing but ink, a typewriter, and the guidance of his fierce older sister Agnes, Phillip’s reality meets fiction as his characters come to life before his very eyes.
